    I would definitely use a backing plate of some kind.

    Thanks CPT. Makes more sense. Going to tackle this project on Friday.

    There is a spot on each side of the bow pulpit that I could mount a cleat but I am not sure if this is a good spot. I am concerned about stress on the bow pulpit. Any input is greatly appreciated.
    I wouldn't put anything else on the pulpit. Instead, I'd put one on each side of the foredeck near the rub rail but on top. That way you have good access to it from the dock, and the reinforced deck will better handle the strain. I'd also put a backing plate - like a ›" thick piece plastic or ¼" flat metal - behind it, though other members may know how solid the deck is whether it needs that, of just some SS fender washers.
